SMALL CLASSES (MAXIMUM 4 DOGS)
TO ENSURE YOU ARE ABLE TO RECEIVE ADEQUATE ONE-TO-ONE ATTENTION AND TO ALLOW YOUR DOGS TO LEARN IN A CALM OUTDOOR ENVIRONMENT.

  • Classes are held in practical outdoor training environments
  • Small classes allow me to give personal and effective advice on behaviour and training for each dog in the class
  • Giving you a dog which is a pleasure to live with at home and in public.

All classes will be held on public land to maximise learning in practical dog-walking environments.

Please note that I cannot accept dogs into class if they have any aggression issues towards other dogs or with people but one-to-one behavioural advice is available.

PLEASE CONTACT (EMAIL OR TELEPHONE) FOR REGISTRATION FORM, LOCATION AND PRICE

"Sally doesn’t just train the dogs, she trains me to train my dog, so I learn what I need to do for the whole of my dog’s life,
not just while the classes are going on.  Sally knows how to get the best from a dog no matter what their temperament
is like and I would happily recommend her classes and individual training sessions to anybody who needs help with their dog.

More about the classes...

You can relax - you are not meant to arrive with a well-behaved dog at the first class ...

Whilst safety and the well-being of dogs and owners is paramount, classes and workshops are held in a relaxed, non-competitive environment.  However, a commitment to doing your 'homework' each day between classes will enable you to see the best results.

The core training exercises covered in all classes will enable you to have a well mannered, contented companion and are also an excellent start for essential obedience and motivational training for those of you who wish to take part in competitive sports in the future.  Course content includes:-

  • Appropriate socialisation for your puppy or dog
  • Recall (dog coming when called)
  • Walking on a loose lead
  • Wait (and remain in position)
  • Sit (and remain in position)
  • Down (and remain in position)
  • Leave (food, toys and other items)
  • How to play correctly (teach good manners,
    gain focus and motivate your dog)
  • How to deal with common behaviour issues such as house training & play-biting
  • How to avoid common behaviour issues such as aggression over food and other items
  • How to groom and examine your dog
  • Understanding canine communication
  • Improving our own communication with our dogs
  • Correct use of rewards
  • UK Dog Law - essential knowledge for dog owners.

Improving the basics ...
Socialisation & dog training walks

Once you have successfully completed the obedience course or course of one-to-one training with me, you may join our regular dog training walks to maintain and improve your training skills.  These walks are designed to encourage you to continue with your dog's training and therefore only a small fee of £10 per walk is charged.  These walks have a more informal feel to them and offer the chance of improving your training knowledge and the opportunity to chat with like-minded dog owners.  Sometimes we will also stop for refreshments, which is a good opportunity to teach dogs how to settle and behave in such places.
